Stuff You Need to Know

 

Don’t forget today is the Blood Drive from 7:30AM – 2:00PM in the Spartan Gym!  Students who are interested in donating blood will have the opportunity to donate during their gym period, before school, or full-period study hall.  Considering the blood drive ends at 2:00PM, students with 11th period gym classes must donate before school or during their full-period study hall.  Donors age 16 &17 must have a signed parent consent form to donate. Donors also must weigh at least 110 lbs. The parent consent forms are available in the main office.  Participating students must also have a photo ID.  Students should bring their iPad to complete the check-in process online. 

 

Following the Heroes Night Basketball game back in February between Reavis and Oak Lawn, a scholarship has been set up in the names of the two fallen police officers. One will be given out to a Reavis senior, and one to an Oak Lawn senior. The scholarship is for $1000 and we are now seeking applications. Applicants must have a 3.0 GPA or higher, planning to pursue a career in law enforcement, and extra consideration will be given to student-athletes and/or students involved in extracurricular activities. If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, applications can be picked up in the Athletic Office. Completed applications are due by Friday, May 10th.

 

Permit packet pickup will begin next Tuesday April 30th and Wednesday May 1st from 8am-8:25am. Please come to the drivers ed room 281 with your student ID to pick up your materials. If you have any questions, please see a DE staff member.
